Military Friendly® is the military ratings division of Victory Media, a service-disabled, veteran-owned business. Military Friendly® rates companies and colleges on their programs to recruit and retain military veterans as employees and students. Military Friendly® is a federally trademarked term, created in 2003 by Victory Media.

Daniel Nichols, chief product officer of Victory Media and a U.S. Navy Reserve veteran adds, “Those earning the 2016 Military Friendly® designation demonstrate a strong connection between classroom learning and career development. They’re moving the needle beyond ‘why recruit military’ to translating military competencies into training and positive employment after graduation.

This is the sixth time the Wescoe School has earned this designation since the Military Friendly Program began in 2003. In 2013, Muhlenberg was named the nation's best liberal arts college for veterans by U.S. News and World Report. The College has been a participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program since its inception in 2009.
